To the budget traveler in Japan, taxis are an expensive and unnecessary alternative to the public transportation.
In suburban area of Kyoto such as Miyama, however, municipal bus operation is less frenquent, thus taking a taxi from central Kyoto to Miyama can be one of the good alternatives.
If you travel in groups of three or more people, taxis can also be an economical option for shorter rides.
